Electricity and total current

  1. Apr 15, 2015 #1
    uploadfromtaptalk1429108030374.jpeg , 2.5 amps of current is drawn from the battery . Does that means that the total current for all of the bulbs are 2.5 amps ? and can i say , on bulb has 0.5 amps of current flow (given that the 5 bulbs are identical)? thanks in advance.
